Backup Technology Acquired by Publicly Listed Leading UK Cloud Company

Backup Technology, ‘BTL’, is delighted to announce that it is now part of publicly listed leading UK cloud company iomart Group plc.

This is a major opportunity for BTL and our customers, as we will now be able to expand and develop knowing that we have the support of one of the fastest growing cloud and managed service providers behind us.
Simon Chappell, one of the founders of BTL, is moving on to pastures new but other than that it is very much business as usual.

Ritchie Fiddes, Sales & Service Director of Backup Technology, said: “As the growth of cloud services continues to gain momentum, iomart Group provides a perfect fit for BTL to be able to offer its customers additional complimentary services. Being able to plug directly into iomart’s expertise and its enterprise level data centres and fibre network means we can work with even bigger customers who require the big infrastructure and strong balance sheet that iomart can provide.”

Angus MacSween, CEO of iomart Group plc, stated: “We are delighted to welcome BTL to the Group as they have achieved ground breaking progress in the delivery of cloud backup and disaster recovery. BTL gives iomart a solid and well-established platform to grow further from, with a very good enterprise customer base and little crossover from the existing Group base. It’s a very good strategic fit, complementing our portfolio of existing products.”

iomart Group plc is one of the UK and Europe’s largest providers of cloud computing and hosting services, serving over 300,000 customers each day. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange’s Alternative Investment Market (AIM) and is financially strong and profitable.
